Product description

Review

‘Few writers in the genre today have Hill’s gifts: formidable intelligence, quick humour, compassion and a prose style that blends elegance and grace’ Donna Leon

‘The finest male English contemporary crime writer’ Val McDermid

‘Reginald Hill’s novels are really dances to the music of time, his heroes and villains interconnecting, their stories intertwining’
Ian Rankin

From the Back Cover

"The best living male crime writer in the English-speaking world"
'Independent'

Three times DCI Pascoe has wrongly accused dead-pan joker Franny Roote. This time he's determined to leave no gravestone unturned as he tries to prove that the ex-con and aspiring academic is mad, bad and dangerous to know.

Meanwhile Edgar Wield rides to the rescue of a child in danger, only to find he's got a rent boy with a priceless secret under his wing. DC Bowler is looking forward to a blissful New Year with the girl of his dreams. Unfortunately, her dreams are filled with a horror too terrible to tell…

And over all this activity broods the huge form of DS Andy Dalziel. As trouble builds, the Fat Man discovers (as many deities before him) that omniscience can be more trouble than it's worth.

"It's clever, involving and admirably resolved. No one does it better than Hill"
'Guardian'

"The climax is superb, frightening and surprising, and everything falls into place brilliantly"
'The Times'
